Insurer’s mere negligence in handling a claim is insufficient to support a finding of bad faith rules the Florida 4th DCA

Even thou the court recognized that there were in fact deficiencies in GEICO’s claims handling it was not enough to say the Insurance Company committed bad faith. Uh?

The Fourth District pointed out, that: “[N]egligence alone is insufficient to sustain a bad faith award. An insurer’s imperfect handling of a claim does not, by itself, equate to bad faith; the essence of a bad faith claim is that the insurer put its own interests before that of the insured.”  Uh?

Insurance Companies have the deck stacked in their favor.  Insurance claims are a legal process and one should never file an insurance claim without a lawyer on your side.
